Our Mission

Our mission is documentation, research, and education on wild and cultivated flora. For these purposes, the herbarium seeks to maintain, provide access to, and augment its collections of these plants. The staff of the herbarium is committed to serving the scientific community --- both on-campus and off --- and to providing "outreach," sharing its collections and staff botanical expertise with those not of that community.

Dr. John Thieret
